Vehicle fuel efficiency: Potential measures to encourage the uptake of more fuel efficient, low carbon emission vehicles

22 Sep 2008
Description

This discussion paper examines eight potential measures to encourage the uptake of more fuel efficient, low carbon emission vehicles. They are:

• CO2 emission targets for new light vehicles (voluntary or mandatory)
• Differential registration and stamp duty charges for new light vehicles based on CO2 emissions
• Direct financial incentives for low emission vehicles
• Fleet purchasing frameworks which incorporate CO2 reduction objectives
• Inclusion of fuel consumption and CO2 data in new vehicle advertisements
• International standards/labelling requirements for non-engine components which impact on CO2 emissions
• An environmental rating scheme for heavy vehicles
• A technology demonstration scheme for Australian commercial road transport fleets linked to CO2 outcomes.
